VAM owner

I was filling up my Kammback and a gentleman approached me and complimented me on my car and said at one time he owned an AMC but it was one that was made in Mexico.  So we chatted about his VAM for a bit.  He said he didn't know that there was ever a 4WD AMC so I told him a little bit more about Eagles.  Nice conversation and pretty cool to meet someone that owned a VAM.  When his wife came out of the gas station he pointed out my car to her and while I didn't hear what he said, you could tell he was excited to share the story of his car.
1981 Kammback 258 - "Pepe"

1972 Gremlin X 304
